The Woman in White: New BBC Production

Ben Hardy is starring as Walter Hartright in a new BBC One production of Wilkie Collins' The Woman in White. The upcoming period thriller is a new adaptation of the classic novel, and also features Olivia Vinall as Laura Fairlie.

Viewed by many as the first psychological thriller novel, The Woman in White will follow Hardy's Walter as he's drawn into a mysterious and disturbing world after encountering a woman dressed all in white on a moonlit road.

Still no info on when it will reach the TV screen--or the U.S.!

I await with trepidation. the last adaptation made child abuse, which is not mentioned in the novel, a central theme. The novel doesn't need improving so I hope the producers avoid the temptation to include modern day sensibilities and just do the novel as is. It needs no help.

The epistolary mystery! I too hope they don't mess with it even if they shorten it. Telling the story the way it was written builds the case the right way.
